We ordered 3 electronic chargers from them. The came boxed in a box with air pillows like yours. However, each was shipped separately and arrived the same day.

The never heard of cushioned envelopes obviously.

I'll never forget the zip line adventure we had there... I follow those guys on FB and they had a huge crowd there today that went zipping.

Marty I think Papa Steve was talking about the GC in downtown Little Rock. You are referring to the Catherine Landing GC in Hot Springs.

I was thinking about this when I saw the washers or whatever and then it dawned on me - it's a training issue. Think about it, how would you train people to decide which package to use to send product (successfully)? It'd be a nightmare so they just standardized it to be one way and one way only. Find a box that holds the product sufficiently to add air bags in as well. Done.

And now for something completely different...

Hey Barb, what year is Smarty? I see where M-B is going to recall 40-some thousand 2008 & 2009 Smart cars.
